Prague CityPrague (Great Cities S.) The austere beauty of Prague, capital of the new Czech Republic, graces both sides of the Vitava river and is linked by a series of bridges including the celebrated Charles Bridge, built in 1357. Prague is the history of central Europe in a nutshell. It was the imperial capital of Charles I, Holy Roman Emperor; city of the Bohemian King Wenceslas; passed to Ferdinand of Habsburg in the 1500s; was the scene, in 1618, of the Defenestration that led to the Thirty Years War; came under harsh imperial rule from Austria until the early 19th century when a new sense of national identity was fostered with a revival of Czech language and culture - much of which is evident today.

A Gypsys Life in PragueIren Stehli: Libuna - A Gypsy's Life in Prague For almost 30 years, Swiss photographer Iren Stehli followed the life of Libuna, a gypsy living in Prague, and her family. This book is a moving long-term study, a precise and close look at a life on the margins of Eastern European society under Communism and after the Velvet Revolution. It's a saga of love, tenderness, and pain, a testimony to Libuna's indomitable strength and lust for life. Not only an innovative and sensitive chronicle of the ups and downs of a woman's life, the rich details of the images in Libuna outline a history of everyday life and popular culture in the former Eastern Block. At the same time, pictures and captions represent an exploration of photography's possibilities and the ways in which it can preserve the intensities of the lived moment. Libuna is striking proof that photography's secret is neither sensationalism nor the concoction of flashy phantasmagorias, but the patient and humble search for images that transform glimpses of the world into small epiphanies, refractions of the world's ineffable truth.
